ModMath App

ModMath is a  new iPad app developed for individuals with dyslexia and dysgraphia to produce basic math problems.  And,  if that isn’t good enough the app is (currently) free! If you have searched for methods of producing math electronically, you might agree that options are limited. For the iPad, there are few math worksheet apps available that offer use of a division sign, align fractions and keep alignment with key input. ModMath app, on the other hand,  provides a worksheet format for producing addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems along with tools to create fractions, equations, carryover symbol and division symbol with and without a remainder sign. Use of the app is easy and intuitive to use for students with little instruction needed (it does always help reading the information page!). The app also provides a grid to help with aligning and entering numbers and also automatically enters numbers in a left to right order.  Here are a few screen shots of the apps: with a description below of a few more of the features: Mod Math app pic1  Mod Math pic2 MathMod pic6a The app provides workflow options to print or email. Multiple or single pages can be sent or printed. The document is sent in a PDF file for ease of use.

I was able to use Voice over with the menu buttons,  number keyboard and work entered on the worksheet. I have not trialed use of a switch with the app however, I suspect that navigation on the worksheet may be a problem. Thank you to ModMath developers for creating this app and sharing it with students, teachers/therapists and parents for free. It is a great tool for students with dysgraphia who have an iPad and need to write out math problems. More for your Teaching / OT mTool Kit! Carol
